Keeper of the Memorial Gardens of Treji
The Keeper of the Memorial Gardens of Treji is an Imperial title created by the Imperial Senate in Autumn 378YE. The position of keeper is a sinecure, requiring minimal responsibility but offering a regular income of valuable herbs. Initially a Navarr national position, the title was amended during the Summer Solstice 382YE to transfer custody to the Imperial Orcs.
The Keeper of the Memorial Gardens of Teji gains custodianship of a sinecure. They receive 6 Bladeroot, 6 True Vervain, 2 Cerulean Mazzarine, 2 Imperial Roseweald, and 2 doses of Marrowort each season.
The title can be held by an Imperial Orcs citizen. The Keeper has tenure, and serves until they die or step down. They can be revoked by the General Assembly, the Imperial Orcs National Assembly, and by the Assembly of the Nine.
May we never forget the sacrifice of the Summer Storm and the Navari who fought with them to retake Treji.
Let they find their way through the Labyrinth.
Let them find their way over the Abyss to the far shores.
May we never forget we are stronger as a united Empire,
Let those who read this have the virtue to live up to the example set by those liberators.
The Memorial Gardens
The gardens contain a thousand flapping pieces of cloth, each piece from a fallen hero from the battle to retake Treji, both Navarr and Summer Storm alike. Beneath each flag is a small herb garden of Bladeroot and scented flowers. The Bladeroot represents the early deaths of those who fought and the scented flowers chosen to remind those that smell them of summer. At the centre of the garden stands a monument to the fallen crafted from weirwood and enchanted ice. Atop the monument is a statue of a Navarr warrior sanding back to back with an Imperial orc from the Summer Storm legion, their bodies covered like tattoos with the names of the dead. Beneath it rests a plaque, memorializing the fallen.
When the gardens were first created, they were placed in the custody of the Navarr. During the Summer Solstice 382YE, however, custodianship was transferred to the Imperial Orcs. The Constitutional Court ruled that as the title had tenure, the keeper at the time the amendment was made - Ceinwen eternal of the Eternal Family - would retain custody until they died, stepped down, or were revoked. After this, the title would be appointed by the Imperial Orcs.
